Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke's 'Fresh Faces' Cover Marie Claire
Actresses Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke along with Elizabeth Olsen and Elle Fanning have each landed their own May 2014 Marie Claire magazine covers for the Hollywood Fresh Faces issue.
They were chosen for the magazine because they all have a refreshingly unique take on the world and Marie Claire is proud to celebrate each of them and all they’ve accomplished thus far.
Here are some highlights from the interviews:
Lupita Nyong’o on being called gorgeous: “Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me.”
Lupita on waiting for her category at awards shows: “I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.”
Luptia on this past year: “It was phenomenal. As brilliant as it was, onward ho. I hope that I will get to work soon. In due time, what I should do next and what I want to do next will reveal themselves. I am not in the business of trying to top this year – that’s virtually impossible. I’d have to be pronounced the queen of England or something.”
Kata Mara on getting rid of her red hair: “I felt relieved getting rid of red – people in my family were saying, ‘Red hair is your identity – you’ll ruin it!’ But I’m an actor. I’d shave my head if the part called for it. I love morphing into someone different; it makes you wear makeup differently.”
Elizabeth Olsen on the lifestyle she wants to have: “I definitely know what kind of lifestyle I want to have. Some people recognize you for your work, not for being pictured going to clubs. So, I try and keep that kind of profile that people know you from your work and that’s it. There are some jobs that I’ve said no to, because I know what kind of attention they will bring. I choose not to have that specific kind of attention.”
Elizabeth on whether she’s the muse for her sisters’ [Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen] clothing line, Elizabeth and James: “God, no. I just try and see what they do and copy them like the rest of the world does.”
Elle Fanning on how she dresses: “I like to dress my age. You don’t want to look too old when you’re not, or too young when you’re not.”
